In a world accustomed to statuesque models and celebrities, at first glace, Miroslava Duma may seem out of place amongst leggy models and larger than life depictions of high fashion. However, what Duma lacks in stature, she more than makes up for in her flair for dressing. Undaunted by her petite frame, she embraces her personal style, body shape, and unabashedly makes a wide range of stylish choices that run the gamut of fun, experimental, sporty, and classic. When it comes to dressing, Duma is fearless.
Duma has made herself someone we can all look up to for inspiration to find our own style and love what we wear. Symmetrical or not, she embraces geometry in her wardrobe, applied to coats, tops of all shapes and sizes as well as dresses. She also loves to combine tailored coats or elegant blouses with sneakers and other sporty footwear. Duma does not restrict herself to conventional notions of dressing. Her wardrobe is a constant rotation of inspiration pieces that inspire women of all shapes and sizes, tall or short.
Once afraid to step out of the house in without added height, Duma turned to flats for comfort after having her first child and now she regularly rotates sneakers and ballet flats amongst chunky wedges and the occasional stiletto. Good tailoring is key for fit and she makes sure to hem her pants so that they fit well and elongate her pins. She also plays with proportions by cinching belts slightly higher than her natural waistline, creating the illusion of longer legs.
Accessories also play a major role in Duma’s outfits. A pair of nerdy glasses, an eye-catching clutch, or a sparkly statement necklace, the quirky brunette loves to experiment with different combinations and looks. She recalls how much she resented the notion of conformity and was constantly chastised growing up for modifying and incorporating extra details to her schoolgirl uniform. Today, the frustrations of her formative years have paid off — the all grown up Duma is never short on style.
